Great post Virgil,
I am new to this whole idea of being a man. That may sound strange considering I have been married twice, have 3 kids, and am a 54 year old male who manages over 80 people but it is true.
I have suffered from "Nice Guy Syndrome" my whole life and luckily for me a woman I was dating this summer let me know. I can't thank her enough. I am just now starting to realize that my desires and wants and needs are important and by acting like they aren't I show women that I have no value. Thus they don't value me.
I am really exciting about continuing on in my journey of finally becoming a man and acting like one.
